There is a general consensus that if you keep working hard you will become successful, people believe that putting in the effort and the long hours is enough to place them where they want to be.
However, doing all the work with no vision or strategy will not yield results. Often, people become so occupied and busy, working very hard yet remaining unhappy and broke, this is the case when people just “do” to keep busy.
Sometimes we get so busy and consumed by our hard work that we lose sight of what we are doing and why we are doing it.
It is therefore imperative to keep going back to the drawing board to ensure that what is being done is in par with the vision, and that the strategy we have put in place is still being executed.
In business, sometimes the result of your labour will not be marked by the amount of money you make, a successful business needs additional assistant support such as exposure, client base and reputation.
Working hard to build these is never in vain. Hard work is encouraged, but hard work must be well directed in order to be meaningful.
